that we fell in love with really above everything else about barack obama and about michelle obama is what they say about the american dream. here are two people from the unlikeliest of backgrounds raising themselves up, attaining huge incredible personal success and still remaining committed first and foremost to their family and their community. one moment in particular that struck me in her speech is she talked about coming from humble means, but it didn't sound like a hardship. she spoke of the joy and the pride and the hard work in that household, which i think is a powerful rebuttal to the sort of you didn't build that narrative that comes from the republicans and the idea that poor people who require government assistance are lazy, shiftless, dependent. no, there was pride and there was responsibility in that household. >> well, you know, i think it was a great speech. she looked great. she sounded great. in some senses, i would say that michelle obama is a much moral effective speaker than even her husband who is a very gifted speaker. i couldn't find her eyes on the prompter. she

for barack obama right now. one is as michelle was just saying look at his popularity right now. part of that is a product of how the republicans have treated bill and hillary clinton for the past few years. where they treated them for villains for 15 years. and started in 2008 saying he was the good democrat and now barack obama is the bad one. and bill says the policies he wants to implement on tax rates for rich, that's what clinton enacted in 1993. he can say i did that. every single republican in the house, every republican in the senate in 1993 said exactly what every single republican today is saying. and look what happened in the 1990s. look how the deficits came down. didn't harm the economy to have those higher tax rates. that's all barack obama wants to go back to now. and the other reason is simply there's a contrast here between what happened under bill clinton and under george w. bush. it's hard for barack obama to be explicit about saying that. when he invokes bush, it's easy for the republicans to say he's blaming the predecessor. that doesn't apply to clinton. >> mich
